    Need some help if any can provide any

    I have a Colby Kyros Model # MID8027
    Android Ver 2.3.3
    Kernal Ver 2.6.35.7
    Build # 20111209

    I got the Market going but it is very limited... Compared to my Samsung Galaxy phone more then 60% of the market will not show up ???????

    Another thing is it won't allow me to DL the facebook app ???? Says it's already installed on my phone, which it is. I can't get any facebook app to work?

    This is my Wifes tablet and we both have the Samsung Galaxy phone with facebook. So whty can't I install a free app on this tablet??? Even when I take it on either cell phone in the market while using the tablet it says it's not compatable with this device and see's it as a phone?

    I hear about rooting but it looks like I dont have to do it ???????

    Getjar's market it lousy would love to use the Android Market

    Any help?

    Well you need to root the device, edit the build.prop so that is shows it's another device that has a licenses to use the market. Coby doesn't has a license that's why the market doesn't come preinstalled, the android market uses the devices build.prop to determine which apps are available for the device, a nonlicensed tablet shows the least amount of apps available.

    Roger. I'd highly recommend one of two things. Either search the forums here or head on over to xda-developers.com and look into installing a rom like cyanogenmod7 on your tablet. It will probably wipe away many if not all of the issues you are having now. Here's a link to a youtube vid that shows what your tablet can do with this rom installed.

    The site the video lists Welcome to your web site
    I get this """""
    [h=3]Welcome to your future Website[/h]In order to view your website, please remove this file "index.html" and replace it with your own index.html file


    Now when I go to Lysesoft and grab the file it says and when I install it it's not the same files as in the video there is no root 24z or recovery files????

    Be careful what you find and install, some things will brick your tablet, I know you are new here make sure you only install things made for your tablet. If you just want to root and you have adb installed, you can manually root your tablet. If you want a custom recovery to make backups and install zips and roms. Go to KTZ forum install my recovery and flash the market root zip once you have done that you can edit the build.prop. two edits is all that needs to be done, then you need to clear market cache reboot to recovery, clear cache and clear Dalvik Cache.

    in build.prop

    you change

    ro.sf.lcd_density = 200
    to
    ro.sf.lcd_density = 160

    160 allows you to find more stuff in market as a lot of stuff are for 160, you can set back to 200 anytime you want just flush market and cache like you did first time.

    the second setting is

    change this
    ro.product.device=m801

    to this
    ro.product.device=GT-i9020

    this tells market you have a Nexus S

    you could use what your Samsung tablet has if you want.

    here is a way to manual root, a little different than the way I do it but none the less would work.
